Need some help. I attached my abstract photo. Would you consider this as an abstract.
Critics and comments are welcome.

Sorry, but I'm going to be a bit blunt and I hope you don't take it too heart. To me this is a tree with some clouds and does not say abstract to me at all. When I think of abstract, I think of something that I have to give a little bit of thought to as to what it is.
I'd try something else!

Mary is right.
Here is a definition I found on-line that describes abstract art or photography better than I can, but I do like the explanation.
Objective abstract art will present a recognizable subject in an unusual way. Non-objective abstract art will present lines, form and colors full of light and energy that flow from an non recognizable subjects.
So if you subscribe to this definition, your photo doesn't really fit well with abstract.

An abstract photo is a shot of something that you find unreal or very unusual. To me, it is a picture that I have to kinda look at and maybe tilt my head to see if I can make something out of it from another angle... lol.
An example of something abstract could be something like this:
This was a shot taken while I was in Disney's Space Mountain. Right before the big drop, the ride stopped. I wanted to capture the pin-point stars and as soon as I hit the shutter, it started a long exposure time picture and the coaster started to slowly move forward as the shutter was still open.
The combination of these 2 events (never likely to happen again for me in my lifetime), gave me the abstract picture above.
